Instagram’s support site states that “You can’t have an Instagram profile for your business if you’ve already created a Facebook profile for the same business.” And this means that before creating an Instagram account for your business or starting any other activity on Instagram, you must first deactivate your Facebook account as an admin of the page. This tutorial is a guide on fixing this Instagram account is already connected to a Facebook page.
Instagram has become very popular in the business and marketing area (see well-known influencers). Especially in this area, it is useful to have a series of statistics regarding the publication of posts that help organize yourself to improve your content’s visibility.
Not only do those who professionally use Instagram need to schedule posts and campaigns following a calendar, but we may need to do it too.
The choice of publication time is one of the main rules when it comes to being followed on Instagram by automatically publishing at the times of greatest interest to our audience.
How to schedule instagram posts automatically?
The answer is yes, it is possible. Since the beginning of 2018, the Instagram team, with the surprise presentation of the new APIs ( Instagram Graph API ), has made it possible to schedule posts with some limitations and excluding other types of automation such as bots which are categorically prohibited.
You can proceed with the scheduled publication of the posts without running risks and with some limitations:
- It is not possible to program stories. They will be published manually.
- It is forbidden to insert the position in a post or individual tag people (you can do it manually in the comments)
- No programming for posts that contain videos
What is the purpose of scheduling posts on Instagram?
Anyone who is a little familiar with the network knows that there are times when it is easier to have likes and interactions on your content. Moreover, those who do it for work know how difficult it is to manually and effectively manage a single profile and, when the profiles start to become two or more, it becomes complex.
Automatic post scheduling:
- It helps those who use Instagram for work to effectively manage multiple profiles.
- It is useful for launching posts at specific times and times or identified as most effective.
- It allows you to save time by planning posts.
- It gives us the ability to use “templates” for our posts and reuse relevant phrases and hashtags.
- It allows you to overview the posts and create a common style (see also: tips for increasing followers ).
